 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

You were dead in trespass and sin,

On the path that you had once walked;

With such a corruption within,

Insulting others as you mocked.

 

You followed the course of the world,

Following the prince of the air;

As disobedience is hurled,

Whatever the Lord would declare.

 

The spirit works now in the sons,

The ones with immoral passions;

Desires of lustful puns,

While wearing raunchy fashions.

 

Their mind is like children of wrath,

Sort of like the rest of mankind;

Allowing them to take the path,

Fulfilling the passionate mind.

 

But God rich in mercy and grace,

Because of His compassionate love;

He is still willing to embrace,

And by forgiving us thereof.

 

Even though we had been once dead,

From the corrupted trespass;

We are given new life instead,

Accepting Christ if we confess.

 

Through Christ by grace you have been saved,

And have raised us up with the Lord;

Made pure of the sin that enslaved,

So, we can be in one accord.

 

For in the coming of the age,

Immeasurable wealth of grace;

No longer is death as a wage,

So that we can meet face to face.

 

Through faith by His grace you are saved,

And this is not of your doing;

It is the gift of God that has paved,

A holy highway in pursuing.

 

Not from the works that you could boast,

But through good works of Jesus Christ;

Assisted by the Holy Ghost,

Avoiding from being enticed.
